Hey hey, it’s Tuesday! Other than being the second day of the week, that doesn’t mean all that much, particularly for those looking forward to next week’s Thanksgiving holiday (at least here in the USA). But turn that frown upside down, because we’ve got some juicy MacBook rumors, a swanky new update to the Comic Zeal Comic Reader app, whispers of a new Apple TV on the way and a preview of what the Netflix app will look like on the iPad in a few weeks for this Tuesday, November 15, 2011.
It may be Monday, but so it was eventful one, with Apple surprising everyone with the release of iTunes 10.5.1 with iTunes Match after a two-week delay. Demand for the service was apparently so strong that the company started dialing down new subscriptions, so if you’re one of those affected, spend a few of those moments getting caught up on the rest of the news for this Monday, November 14, 2011.
It’s 11/11/11, which just so happens to also be Veteran’s Day here in these United States of America, It’s also a Friday, which means most of us are ready to eject the grueling memories of another work week and enjoy the weekend.

If you’re like us, you’ve been too busy playing with iOS 5.0.1 today to get any work done or just keep up with the daily news. And who can blame you? We all want to push our iOS devices to the max and see if Apple has made good on their promise of extended battery life with the first over-the-air update. The good news is, now that you’ve done that and still have plenty of battery left to spare, you can still catch up on the day’s happenings. Here’s the latest for Thursday, November 10, 2011.
Somewhere, Steve Jobs must be smiling. That’s because today, Hell froze over and Adobe finally waved the white flag of surrender on its efforts to bring Flash to mobile devices. Pretty amazing when you consider it was only a year and a half ago that Jobs penned that famous “Thoughts on Flash” meme which helped get the ball rolling for Adobe getting more behind HTML5. While mobile device owners savor a moment of victory, here’s what else is making headlines this Wednesday, November 9, 2011.
Happy Firefox 8 Day! Yes, it’s been six weeks (give or take) already since the last full version of Firefox landed on our computers, which just goes to show you how fast time flies when you’re having fun. Of course, after several rapid-fire releases in a row this year, Firefox is kind of running out of gas when it comes to new features -- but that doesn’t mean there isn’t other interesting stuff happening around the interwebs to thrill and entertain us. Here’s the latest for Tuesday, November 8, 2011.
Wow, it’s hard to believe that another Friday is here and with Halloween behind us, everyone is looking ahead to the holiday season already. Apple is likely done with the exciting releases for the year (aside from iTunes Match and a few software updates), but that hardly means the internet is quiet -- just the opposite, there’s plenty to chatter about for this Friday, November 4, 2011.
Apple did it to us again, issuing both an iOS 5.0.1 beta and a new iTunes 10.5.1 beta 2 with iTunes Match after the daily recap went live on Wednesday -- and seriously bumming out everyone who’s been waiting for that “late October” launch of the $24.99 per year service. Meanwhile, all eyes are on Amazon as they prepare to ship the Kindle Fire in two weeks. Here’s what’s making headlines across the internet for this Thursday, November 3, 2011.
Wow, it’s the middle of the work week again… already? How time flies when you’re having fun!

It’s all right here and ready for your eyeballs on this Wednesday, November 2, 2011.
